Dear Shakespeare : Between the lines

My dear Billy,
By far the best readers in any country are those who read between the lines, because between the lines there is nothing but a blank space. On the other hand, I know many books which have bored their readers to death, mostly premature. By God, why should people read at all? It’s such an uncivil, unmannered thing to do.

Dear Shakespeare : Nobel nobility

My dear Billy,
The Nobel Peace Prize this year is shared by two individuals belonging to two neighbouring countries that have been at war at least twice in the past. Malala Yousafzai is a young Pakistani girl of 16, while her fellow Nobel winner Kailash Satyarthi is a Hindu senior citizen of 60.

Dear Shakespeare : Taking Responsibility

My dear Billy,
How often have you been deceived by well-meaning people who have taken the responsibility of doing something but who have failed to match action with promise? How many times have you been let down by friends and relatives who have promised to help you achieve a task but have disappeared at the crucial moment?

Dear Shakespeare : The sound of silence

My dear Billy,
The world belongs to the one who can make the loudest noise. Noise pervades the whole atmosphere which God His munificence and wisdom created in all tranquility. There is noise in the air, there is noise on the road, there is noise among neighing neighbours, there is noise at home, there is noise in the factories, offices and other workplaces.

Dear Shakespeare : Whose fault ?

My dear Billy,
Have you noticed the wave of suicides that is sweeping among our young people? One of the latest cases is that of the 12-year old Mahima Joory, and like all those before it, this one has been one case too many. This ex-student of the Hindu Girls College in Curepipe has entangled herself in a reported theft of a cellular phone belonging to one of her classmates.
My dear Billy,
The world celebrated Democracy Day early this week. Democracy is a well-intentioned concept which constantly comes out through politicians’ mouths.
My dear Billy,
You must certainly have been wondering about my absence these past few weeks. Rest assured, my dear Billy, my missives to you were not “booted and flushed down the toilets,” in spite of whatever lies and insinuations Mr. Philip Li may try to invent and present to you, as he has unsuccessfully attempted to do in a recent past. Incidentally, Mr. Li is fond of calling himself a writer, although he has not published a single book so far.
My dear Billy,
There’s an old saying that tells us that “A hungry man is an angry man.” In fact, hunger is a most debasing state which induces men and women to commit reprehensible acts which they would never think of committing on a full stomach.

Dear Shakespeare : Moment of greatness

My dear Billy,
Thanks to the live coverage by the MBC of the Parliamentary debates on the Constitution (Declaration of Community) (Temporary Provisions) Bill, I got to listen to most of the speeches of our National Assembly representatives who took the floor.
My dear Billy,
Has it ever occurred to you to marvel at the early morning sun and find inspiration in its golden rays? Or soaked in the rain in wild abandon? Or strolled on the soft sand at the seaside and felt the soothing effect?  As it used to happen with the English poet William Wordsworth, “My heart leaps up with joy whenever I behold a rainbow in the sky.”
